Celtic vs Rangers: Who should start the Old Firm clash on Saturday?

Celtic and Rangers face off in the first Old Firm game of the Scottish Premiership season on Saturday, but who should start for your side?

Celtic are off to a 100% start to their title defence, winning their first five games of the new season and topping the table.

Rivals Rangers are two points behind with their 2-2 draw at Hibernian ending their perfect start.

Saturday September 3 11:30 a.m.

Kick off 12:30 p.m.

Ange Postecoglou suffered defeat in their first Old Firm game at Ibrox but has been unbeaten against Rangers in the league since then with two wins and a draw.

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst suffered back-to-back defeats in the Old Firm league after taking charge in November, with the last encounter of last season ending 1-1.

Postecoglou have been consistent in their squad selection so far this season with little change to their starting XI.

His biggest decision might be in the back line – Cameron Carter-Vickers, Josip Juranovic and Greg Taylor have started every game, while Mortiz Jenz, Stephen Welsh and Carl Starfelt have all looked solid defensively, with the trio also scoring this season.

Going forward, will David Turnbull return to the starting line-up or will you see Reo Hatate retaining his spot? And does Postecoglou find room for Daizen Maeda, or will hat-trick hero Liel Abada keep his spot?

While Jon McLaughlin is likely to make his first start in an Old Firm league game, who will play ahead of him?

James Sands was lucky enough to avoid the red in the Scottish Premiership’s last outing against Ross County and was replaced by Leon King at half-time. Will the youngster have a rare start?

Steven Davis scored in that game at Ibrox, so do you think the visit to Celtic Park could be one for experienced players like the Northern Irishman and Scott Arfield, or is it time for new signings like Malik Tillman and Tom Lawrence to shine?
